Deflux is a minimally invasive, outpatient treatment that has been proven safe and effective in children with vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). VUR is a serious paediatric urinary condition in which urine refluxes from the bladder through one or both ureters toward the kidneys, due to an abnormality at the junction of the ureter and the bladder. Deflux is an injectable gel bulking agent made from two tissue-friendly polysaccharides; Non-Animal Stabilised Hyaluronic Acid (NASHA®) and dextranomer (Dx) microspheres. The product is administered via injection around the ureteral opening to prevent urine reflux. Deflux is indicated for children with all VUR grades and is the recommended first-line treatment for VUR.1 Separate study results show Deflux is an efficacious long-term (15 – 25 years) treatment option for VUR grade IV2 with up to 93% success rates after a one time injection and no post-injection febrile UTIs (19 month results).3 Deflux is the only minimally invasive VUR treatment approved globally across Australia, Canada, Europe, Latin American, Japan, New Zealand and the United States.
